As I live in a different country, I am not sure what Spanx knickers are, but I found some truly wonderful support knickers for sports purposes. They were stretchy and had a slightly stronger support panel in front. Yet they felt light.

I am so in love with these!! I could go back to ordinary knickers now, but when I really needed them they helped me more than I can say!! I got a size too big for fear they would be uncomfortable over the swelly belly I had, but they were never too tight.

So - I'm sure you can wear those Spanx.

Re: Belly tenderness

Thank you Acey.
spanx are shapewear really, not support wear, so I doubt I'm going to be wearing shapewear any time now. My belly is still very swollen and I feel like an elephant.

Thing is, I'm still wearing the extra large knickers I had bought for my surgery because of the tenderness around my belly button. I have a horizontal incision and it's quite long, but the pain goes up to my belly button and the numbness is also spread quite far.

I'll try to find some support knickers, either from the sports shop or some normal store that sells underwear. What I really needed to know was whether I could even wear tight underpants.

I've been living in PJ's over loose knickers for 5 weeks now!
